- Napkin not standing upright on the plate? Most likely it's because you're using a soft or thin piece of napkin. If you're using cloth, it's better to starch it first to make it stiff. You can also starch the cloth napkin by making your own mix of starch and water. Spray it evenly on a flat surface, then iron it with an ironing board. You can also get ready-made starch spray from the store or make your own by mixing equal parts starch and water in a bowl. Then evenly coat the napkin with the mixture on a flat surface until it dries entirely, being careful not to get any of it onto your hands before. For tissue napkins. use a thick piece of paper to make the tree napkin stand.
